Green-fingered enthusiasts are being encouraged to take part in Bristol Parks' gardening project in Long Ashton.

Volunteer co-ordinator Ella Hogg said: "I started In The Rose Garden sessions this year and I hope people can gain new skills and enhance their wellbeing while tending to gardens at the mansion.

"I hope Bristol Parks is able to build something that has a positive impact to the grounds and those involved."

Ella is working to strengthen connections within North Somerset to make volunteering 'as beneficial and successful as possible' at the manor.
